The future of higher education will be filled with pervasive complexity, ambiguity, and change, requiring a different leadership skill set. The next generation of leaders will have to:

Lead when there aren't any clear answers or solutions
Craft solutions that will require cross-boundary collaboration throughout a campus
Reduce costs while increasing quality and responsiveness
Anticipate future challenges to their institutions in a way that coalesces broad understanding and support for future action
Tap the creative resources throughout their institutions so that alternative approaches and thinking can help solve the complex and thorny issues that face higher education
Build exceptional teams at every level of the campus and empower these teams to move the institution forward in fulfillment of its mission and vision

This practically focused, two-day leadership program will provide participants with tools and strategies that will enable them to effectively navigate the increasing complexity facing higher education.


This program is built on the premise that cross-boundary thinking and collaboration will be key to competing in the future of the higher education industry. As such, it has been designed for emerging leaders throughout higher-ed administration, not simply one particular functional area. The program draws off of the diversity of the attendees' roles and perspectives to help create a systemic view of the institution and industry.

Past participants include:

Department chairs and academic administrators from a variety of schools and departments
Administrators from diverse areas such as admissions, alumni relations, development, finance, human resources, institutional research, and student services


As you know, there are hundreds of books, articles, studies, and conferences on this subject. Here are three reasons why you should consider investing time and money in this program:

This program starts with the right instructors - instructors who have helped develop thousands of leaders and have selected the best of the best resources and materials for our use in this program.
Developing as a leader is an evolutionary process that requires doing and practice. That's why we favor an interactive and experiential approach, one that offers tangible tools and techniques that you can begin using right away.
And finally, while this program is rooted in a deep understanding of the higher education industry, we don't restrict our lessons and examples to those from colleges and universities. In fact, we think taking a broader view of leadership is critical to succeeding in the future. The resources and lessons that will be discussed have been drawn from multiple organizations and settings across the public and private sectors.
